The first 106 bus leaves the airport at 5.14 am ant the last one at 11.29 pm.
If you want to get from the airport directly to the train station, just stay on the 106 bus one more bus stop and walk, or stay on the bus 3 more stops until it reaches the main train station in Wroclaw (Wroclaw Glowny). The main bus station is also nearby, too.

Staying around Wroclaw Airport
If you land late in the evening or need to be at the airport early in the morning, instead of going from Wroclaw airport to city centre, you might want to stay around the airport. Unfortunately, the nearest hotel, Hotel Kosmonauty is still some way from the airport, and you need to arrange a transfer or take a taxi to get there. Also, there is only one restaurant in the walking distance if you want to eat close to the airport. Unfortunately, this restaurant is very expensive, and actually it will be cheaper for you to dine at the airport. The closest supermarket (u Mirka) is about 1,5 km away (might be about 1km, if the small gate in the airport fence is open and you take the small path near the cargo terminal). The airport itself is modern, but quite small, so don’t count on the duty-free shops, as there are not a lot of them at the terminal.
